Saints take advantage of free-falling Eagles
NEW ORLEANS - Anything can happen now.

Anything except a merciful end to this still just half-finished Eagles season, that is.

Given a chance to get their playoff quest back on track last night, one day after everybody else in the NFC East lost, the now 3-5 Eagles sank to previously unexplored depths. In the wake of the players-only meeting, after Michael Vick vowed to get back to aggressive play, after all the discussion of how the New Orleans Saints had the worst statistical defense in the NFL, the Eagles stank out the Mercedes Benz Superdome, losing 28-13, their fourth setback in a row.

It was about to get a whole lot emptier. The Saints got the ball and just shredded the Birdsí defensive line with a previously unremarkable running game, which was missing Darren Sproles. Seven plays, 76 yards, including a 23-yarder by Mark Ingram on which the former Alabama star ran through a Pinkstonesque Nnamdi Asomugha and then a 22-yard TD run by Chris Ivory during which the left side of the Eaglesí line seemed to be trying to evacuate the building.
